The NVIDIA software installer's log file is /var/log/nvidia-installer.log; you can capture the output of `lspci -v` using e.g. the command below and attach the resulting lspci.log file:
# lspci -v > lspci.log

If you are trying to install the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver inside a virtual machine, then the behavior you're seeing is expected- VMware can and does not emulate an NVIDIA graphics device.
